A heart-felt acoustic version of LLR was followed by bluesy version of Way to go Home....a great effort by Vince. Terrapin was epic...I don't think I actually think I heard the song before, but the momentum building towards the outro was....well, moving. The crowd was going nuts...and Jerry kept on rolling with it on & on..like a freight train taking us deep into the valley of the unexplored....
Definitely recommend this show...for both quality of the sound and the band putting one hell of an show together...
This is one of the finest shows of the fall of 1993. Jerry does it all in the Sugaree,"washboard" and "butterfly", its got it all.
The Terapin is outrageous. Read below, he pretty much says it all. That is one h*ll of a jam.
My seats for this night were strait back from the stage, 2nd row from the top. Luckily the guy infront of me wanted to sit up there with his buddies and offered me and this girl from florida, who was sitting next to me, their stubs for the floor. I hopped rite on that and ended up sitting rite infront of the SBD. A considerably better view and sound. Thanks to the locals of Beantown.

aside from that magic alone (for which i was grateful at the time, never knowing if each time would be the last time indeed), something stellar opened up in the second set. after a sloppy eyes, bob performed a solid LLR. the boyz responded to the space that acoustic provided: we could hear the top and bottom of phil's notes, jerry ringing clear. they faked terrapin, played long way to go, not my fave but not a buzz kill like samba, then terrapin.
i've always liked odd-ball jams (think 10-31-83, 10-12-84, 8-28-81) and this terrapin was one of the more interesting i witnessed. at the time, we were calling the additional floaty pieces after terrapin "butterfly jams," and, after a perfectly executed terrapin proper (with a beautiful space after the story teller verse), i was eager to hear some little improvs. little did i know that this "little improv" would clock in over twelve minutes! at times disjointed, there are moments when jerry erupts in a flurry of twisted notes that hit the nail on the head but in weird places. during the show, just when i thought it would wind down, jerry would find a new flow and run with it.
sound quality is a B+/A-: nice hall echo, crisp, yet, a sbd would erase the tinny boston garden qualities. it's just nice to see this show (not even rated or reviewed in deadbase) uploaded and accessible. thank you archive!
p.s. two and half stars would be more appropriate considering the first set. the curious should sample the terrapin-->playin' reprise-->stella blue. this terrapin stands up to some of the most unique jamming i ever witnessed: well worth the price of admission alone. check it out.
